The Starter Mic

This post is part of the Know More Podcasting series where I unlock all the glorious secrets of rambling nonsense and then posting it on the internet, aka podcasting.

If you want to see all of these posts lumped together on one ill-formated page, go here:


Last time I explained to you that you don’t actually need to buy any equipment to podcast. But, eventually you will want to up your game and improve the sound quality.

Here are two USB mics

Blue Yeti $99

Snowball Mic $45








Both are USB mics that plug straight into your computer. These are great to get started. Great for a “roundtable” sort of podcast where you get a couple people together and talk about whatever.

If you want everybody to have there own mic though, you’ll probably need a mixer.

Got questions about podcasting? Email me it will help me figure out what to actually blog about. Or twitter @BrendanClancy
